St. Cyprian Niner Chaplet, Purple Czech Glass
This one of a kind chaplet bracelet is handmade with stunning 8mm Czech glass beads in variegated amethyst hues. Bead caps are copper with vintage patina. Medal and crucifix are imported from Italy. Medal is double-sided with St. Cyprian on one side and St. Cornelius on the other.
This piece was made during the Cyprianic Holy Days of 2021 and blessed, suffumigated, and consecrated on St. Cyprian's altar during this time. [*]
Comes with a lobster clasp and short extension chain if you want to wear it or hang it on something. From the end of the medal to the end of the crucifix, lying flat from end to end, it measures 9.5". From the lobster clasp to the crucifix, lying flat, it measures 10". If you intend to wear it and you need it to fit a smaller wrist, it's a simple matter to remove one or two of the links of the extension chain, or I'm happy to do that for you if you just let me know upon checkout.
As with all of my spiritual jewelry and art items, I'm happy to incorporate your specific petitions or intentions as I dress, fix, and bless this piece in preparation for sending it along to its new home. Just leave me a note when you check out using the customization info form.

[*] Yes, I know this medal is St. Cyprian of Carthage and not St. Cyprian of Antioch. But 1. it's become impossible to source the St. Cyprian of Antioch medals I used to get - the supply has completely dried up, and 2. people have been conflating these two saints and mixing up their details since at least the 4th century, and that includes bishops, popes, and theologians, so the substitution of one image for another absolutely has precedent and puts us in pretty esteemed company.
And honestly, the details of these early saints' lives vary so much from retelling to retelling, and there are so many competing versions recorded, and it's so completely impossible to verify most of the details (assuming the saint in question isn't entirely mythical to begin with, which isn't always a safe assumption) that it's a little silly to split hairs over what someone's beard must have looked like, imo. The two St. Cyprians weren't enemies or at odds or anything - they aren't going to smite you, or dump you and key your car, if you pray to one of them with the aid of the other one's image.
